Hugh married his wife Deborra-Lee Furness on April 11, 1996, just one year after meeting.

The pair met on set of Australian drama Corelli, with Hugh saying he knew he was going to spend the rest of his life with Deborra-Lee after just two weeks.

They have two children: Oscar Maximilian Jackman, 20, and Ava Eliot Jackman, 15.

In 2020, Hugh told People that the secret to their happy marriage was ‘making time for each other and ‘always learning’ from one another.

He said they consciously ‘reset’ their marriage from time to time, which means they don’t grow apart like many longtime couples do.

‘We’re always learning and humans change so you have to, even though we’ve been together 25 years, you gotta reset all the time,’ he said.
